Making A Web-Base Stock Ticker
Hey everyone,

I'm new to programming, only done a bit of C# and VB, but want to learn how to make a stock ticker for a website. I am aware that lots of places already offer these for downloads, but I'm going to make it for a project.

Basically, I want my ticker to the show live (can be delayed, 15mins, etc.) quotes from the stock exchange(s). I am just wondering how I would approach this; what language would I use and how I would get the actual quotes for the ticker. I'm presuming there's a database out there for it?

Thanks in advance
